Comic-Con 2018: Coolest Exclusives At The Show
San Diego will be hosting Comic-Con July 18-22 at the city's convention center, and of course, over 100,000 people will attend the show over the course of the five day period to meet celebrities, attend panels, and buy things. Of course, during the convention, booths will spare no expense to get your hard-earned money, and that means there will be plenty of items you can only buy at Comic-Con--or on eBay a week later with a 1000% markup.
However, sifting through all the different booths on the SDCC website can be time consuming, so we did it for you. We've got a look at tons of the best exclusive items at Comic-Con: comics, art prints, clothing, toys, and more delivered by some of the biggest companies at the convention.
ABC (Booth 4245)
The ABC television network will be at Comic-Con this year, and it will be selling a lot of different merchandise based on your favorite TV shows. The strangest has to be the Golden Girls Crew Socks for $10. Additionally, ABC will be selling pins for $15, t-shirts for $20, and lanyards for $10.
